I finally broke down and got a smart phone yesterday. Regular readers here know that I suffer from iPhone envy and that I haven’t been happy with my LG Voyager since I bought it almost two years ago.
Then again, one person’s trash is often another person’s treasure. When I decided to finally step up to a smart phone I handed the old phone over to Peanut. She is ecstatic. Prior to this she was using an older Motorola Razr that needed a strip of duct tape to hold battery cover on.
As for me, I am still a bit lost. While I have figured out how to do the basic tasks like make a phone call and use the GPS feature, I am still struggling to get my email to connected. Having a smart phone hasn’t made me any smarter.
Ironically, my main objection to trading up to a smart phone was the additional cost and yet adding the data feature ended up not costing me any more than I was paying previously. The reason is that I had a plan that allowed for 1,400 minutes a month. I never came close to even half that so I switched to 700 minutes which made the data addition a push.
It’s too soon to say whether the Motorola Droid will finally cure my iPhone envy.
